I would get at least two of those, however they will have the CCHA patch on them and I don't think I would like that on there for only one year until they switch over to Big Ten.  I'll wait until next year.

I'm not a fan, particularly of the new maize jerseys. They were nice as a one-off; they're not so nice as a regular outfit. I'll probably grow into the throwback road jerseys, but I still prefer the maize-and-white stripe pattern we're moving away from. 

I don't mind the GLI throwbacks at all, as a throwback. That's a very specific era they're throwing back to and I think it might look cool.

I'm just not a fan of changing the uniforms all the time. This is Michigan, we ought to have a uniform, and there should be a script "Michigan" on the maize jersey.

Get off my lawn.

If you go through the photo gallery, they won't be wearing the winged helmet at the GLI in order to complete the throwback 1970s look.

UGH. I have to say it but I hate them both. I didn't have an issue with the white one we wore at home sometimes but keep the block M the way it is!!! I'm sick of this changing from tradition shit. I loved the simple styles before like what we wore this year. I never liked the Big Chill jersey either it does look like a rat not a Wolverine. I'm giving a thumbs down on these I'm sorry. I'll stick with my maize diagonal MICHIGAN jersey till I see something better than this. The best Michigan hockey jersey made was the maize jersey with Michigan in cursive baseball lettering style on the front with the university shield patches on the shoulders. Those were the best. I agree about the block M with the curved MICHIGAN on the front.

My favorite blue jerseys. Always looked good especially on Turco.

I like having jersey's differing in more than color, I don't like the bold, block M on the beginning of "Michigan", it makes it look unbalanced.  I think the Big Chill jerseys are ugly, wolverines are not at all pretty animals, there is a reason Michigan doesn't put the little Wolverines on everything.  They're great animals, but not at all aesthetically pleasing (yes, I think jerseys should be aesthetically pleasing, especially when you're gifted good colors to work with, like Michigan is).  I understand and actually will go so far as to agree with putting them on Big Chill jerseys, because I know they're basically straight out of  player-Red-era Michigan  hockey, but not as an every weekend thing.  Ideally, for me, the three would be the diagonal "Michigan", the block "M" and the script "Michigan".  But it is what it is.  I'm no fancy designer or marketer or athetic director, so all I have is my own opinion.

I hate the block M in the home and aways, but I love the GLI jerseys. If you're going to go with a block M on a jersey, make it stand alone like that. Don't try to put the out of place block M with the rest of "MICHIGAN." It looks terrible. The alternate/Big Chill redux jerseys just don't do it for me. Still, I'm not going to complain about it like I will about the home/aways.

i guess it could be worse. it could be the Arby's Beef and Chedder Director of Athletics...

whoa, man. for somebody that shares likeness in avatars, we are totally not on the same page. the big block M is awesome.

add maize collar and block M to word "MICHIGAN" to alumni game jersey and BAM! new away jersey. i actually like them except for that i don't like block M incorporated into the word "MICHIGAN." it looks better the way it is on the alumni jerseys. i really like the simple three maize stripes though.

they look more like throwbacks than the throwbacks. they remind me of the anniversary jerseys buffalo had been wearing (which were absolutely amazing in every way, in case you didn't know)

i generally agree with brian though, i think the 08-09 lineup was the best:

although, i did dig the mid-90's script michigan if only for winning national titles while wearing it.

i'm not sure what it is about the block M ones that i don't like. maybe all the white and piping etc? i actually think Red's alumni jersey is pretty slick looking. i guess i'm just a minimalist..

This is third straight year that Michigan will have different jersey designs.

It's really starting to anger me. Pick a design, and STICK TO IT.

Good way to make money, but I'm really not interested in buying any since they have the CCHA patch, and that league will not exist after the season.

I'll wait to buy a road jersey in 2013-14.
